The general minimum lower-order confounding (GMC) criterion for two-level design not only reveals the confounding information of factor effects but also provides a good way to select the optimal design, which was proposed by Zhang et al. (2008). The criterion is based on the aliased effect-number pattern (AENP). Therefore, it is very important to study properties of AENP for two-level GMC design. According to the ordering of elements in the AENP, the confounding information between lower-order… 

Lower-order confounding information of inverse Yates-order two-level designs

Abstract Based on the effect hierarchy principle, a good design should minimize the confounding among the lower-order effects. Thus, it is important to obtain the confounding information of effects


General minimum lower order confounding (GMC) is a newly proposed design criterion that aims at keeping the lower order effects unaliased with one another to the extent possible. This paper shows

A theory on constructing 2n-m designs with general minimum lower order confounding

When designing an experiment, it is important to choose a design that is optimal under model uncertainty. The general minimum lower-order confounding (GMC) criterion can be used to control aliasing

Minimum Aberration 2k-p Designs

Fractional factorial designs-especially the twolevel designs-are useful in a variety of experimental situations, for example, (i) screening studies in which only a subset of the variables is expected


Note that, when r = q, Part (a) of the theorem is obviously valid, since any design S with s factors from Hq, satisfying 2 q−1 ≤ s ≤ 2 − 1, has exactly q independent factors and S ⊂ Hq. So, we only

The 2 k—p Fractional Factorial Designs Part I

A full 2” factorial design requires all combinations of two versions of each of Ic variables to provide the eight vertices of a cube in a three-dimensional coordinate system.

A Modern Theory Of Factorial Designs

The last twenty years have witnessed a significant growth of interest in optimal factorial designs, under possible model uncertainty, via the minimum aberration and related criteria. This book gives,
